So here is our situation.... It's been 6.5 years since we had a baby and I had kept all of two things (mei tai & Boppy) - well I kept books and some small quality baby toys too. I'm a Type A planner. We live in a teeny-tiny house. We tend toward minimalism with babies. I don't want a baby shower (I've actually had to talk two friends out of it).
I put together an Amazon wish list around Week 17 when we found out we were having a girl. It was mostly for me to keep track of the things I wanted to have before she comes. I sent it to the two Grandma's figuring that anyone who wanted to buy us something would come to them. The only thing that came of that was my ILs bought the carseat (yay!). Meanwhile I kept buying things on Ebay and getting great deals. Then in the past 3 months several friends have offloaded almost all of their baby stuff on us. I've declined a lot of it, but this baby girl has an abundant wardrobe (to 6 months - after that I don't know size/seasons, because the boys grew so fast, and she may or may not) and plenty of "gear".
NOW, with 3.5 weeks left +/-, people are starting to come to my DH and ask what they can buy for the baby and/or me. Here's the problem - the registry is empty. We have everything we NEED. With the exception of food. I was really hoping people/church would offer some meals for the first month (especially because my older son is having surgery at the end of March also). But when we tell people that, they still want to buy us "stuff". I don't have any ideas.. What would you ask for in this situation?
I know that DH's work will probably give us a generous gift card to BRU or similar after she is born, and there's not too much I would buy there anyway, but we couldn't use anything that could come from a store like that because the gift card will more than cover it.
I'm editing to add that I know that this is an awesome problem to have and we are abundantly blessed... I don't want to turn people away when they clearly want to be generous with us, but I really don't have any good ideas.
